Shameless Self-promotion Sunday #8
Here's a pretty old post from the blog archives of Geekery Today; it was written about 15 years ago, in 2008, on the World Wide Web.
What did you all write about this week? Leave a link and a short description for your post in the comments.
I wrote a rather long post about the brave Statists who debate on the Mises.org discussion threads, despite the certainty that they’re going to be bombarded with counterarguments from libertarians who really know their stuff. I tried to debunk the arguments put forth by one socialist in one thread that weren’t already debunked (better than I could have) by other commenters.

Let’s see… I began seeking non-state means of identifying myself to companies I do business with and did a bit of education for anarchism by rejecting a government job.
Thanks for these threads, by the way. Besides the self-promotion value they are good nexus points for finding and exploring other perspectives.
It’s sort of a rant, but now that I’m at my new digs, I decided to weigh in on this whole Viacom vs. Google thing. It’s really shameless.
The summary: Viacom is full of crap. If all Viacom wanted was to build a case against Google, then it wouldn’t need so much detailed information about users. I also made the comment about how this judge’s “protective order” is no such thing (surprise, surprise) – if the court wanted to protect user rights or privacy, Viacom’s demand for log files wouldn’t have been granted.
I smell ulterior motives.
I wrote about Independence Day and the American Revolution (the original one).
I second Mike’s thanks.
I wrote about the revolutionary ideals that ought be celebrated on the Fourth of July, mutual aid in El Salvador, and police state antics, in particular the expansion of domestic spying in the U.S.

With the informal seminar on P.-J. Proudhon’s “What Is Property?” is more-or-less full swing, I wrote an awful lot about Proudhon. In particular, I tried to clarify the main shift in Proudhon’s ideas about property between 1840, when he wrote “What Is Property?,” and his death.

The U.S. Government has decided to basically appropriate the property of anyone who wants to renounce citizenship. All your property are belong to Uncle Sam

I celebrated the fourth and made a video about it! http://francoistremblay.wordpress.com/2008/07/05/my-fourth-of-july-2008/

We celebrate the fourth with fireworks. Forgetting that the symbolism is in the bombs, rockets, cannon and rifle/ musket shots exchanged with our brothers in a bloody and violent rebellion that ultimately led to the shedding of our bondage from our central government
